It is with great excitement that we can announce that the Canadian Olympic Committee has partnered with the You Can Play Project and Egale to launch the One Team: Creating a Safe School and Sport Environment classroom resources aimed at promoting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Two Spirit, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) inclusion and respect in schools and sports throughout the country.
The Olympic Rings stand for so much more in the world than just for sport; they are transcendent, they have the ability and the power to change society and culture. The COC believes in equality for all, and that athletes should be judged by their performance on the field of play and their character as people, not for who they love or how they identify. By creating change in sport, we can create change across all segments of society.
